Reviews

"This volume of translations of Herder's philosophical writings, many of which have never before been translated, is an important step in making herder accessible to readers who do not know German. Recommended." Choice "This most welcome volume should serve to stimulate further interest in Herder and make his ideas more accessible to Anglophones. For the price, it is a real bargain!" German Studies Review, Joe K. Fugate
